The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is all set to return for the ninth season and while we know Lisa Rinna returns in the popular TV show, she has, however, got a stunning companion for the upcoming season. 

American actress and former model Denise Richards confirmed that she will be joining Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Rinna, Erika Girardi, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, and Dorit Kemsley in Bravo's reality TV show.

Talking to People magazine, Charlie Sheen's former wife Denise expressed her excitement at being a part of the show. "I am so excited to join the cast of [RHOBH] as I am a huge fan of the show. I am looking forward to spending time with all the ladies... and hopefully meeting Boy George!!" she said, referring to Kemsley's close friendship with the '80s pop icon.

The actress is no stranger to reality television. Following her divorce with the Two and a Half Men star, Denise started her own reality television series called Denise Richards: It's Complicated.

The show began in 2008 but was aired only until 2009. It documented her life as a single mother after the divorce. Unfortunately, the show ended after the season 2 finale. 

As for the ninth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the show began filming about a month ago. Apart from Denise, the show is expected to feature the cast members that were part of the previous season in the Beverly Hills neighbourhood.

Late night talk show host and producer Andy Cohen had welcomed Denise to the show.

The first pictures from the sets have already surfaced online with the former Days of Our Lives star photographed with Kemsley and Girardi on a lunch date in a West Hollywood restaurant. There was uncertainty about Rinna's return. However, Rinna tweeted, "You know if I were to come back next season I'll get Hammered. Don't think that's lost on me folks".

However, looks like we have our favourite housewife making her way back home for yet another season.
